Whatever You Do, I'll Do It Too by ARVEN92 Whatever You Do, I'll Do It Too by ARVEN92
"...Show me everything and tell me how
It all means something
And yet nothing to me"


Phil Collins, Strangers Like Me

Watch me speed draw this picture HERE: [link]



WHY won't DA allow "" in the titles D8

Oh well, I DID promise you that I'd be posting something about Africa :) So here you go!
I know some of you have probably already seen this on Youtube, because the speedpaint was posted long ago. But I kind of liked how it came out, so I decided to post it here, too^^ I finally managed to learn how to draw a leopard properly. It took so long it's almost unreal D8

I was re-designing the characters yesterday, and now I have a huge dilemma on these two's designs.

Africa the leopard might stay the same, I might be adding some tufts of fur on her cheeks, but I'm not sure.
As for the little fellow behind her, it's a serval kitten called Mondo. Well, his design is for me the biggest mystery after Einstein's relativity law. I can't manage to get the ideal look for him. He looks too adult for a cub, and I can't find the right fur tone. Damn it D8

Oh well, I'll do it somehow... someday :'D

Anyway, enjoy this picture :)
I'm not going to reveal anything about Africa and Mondo's relationship, even if it's not really hard to guess it. Still, I won't spoil it anymore than this. Speculate at your own risk! ;)

As cute as this is... it gives me a BAD feeling about the future of Africa's cubs. Based on the current events in the comic, I'm thinking Chui will eventually kill them, and then Africa ends up adopting little Mondo out of grief (speaking of which, I have a bad feeling about Mondo's biological mother too; IE, the pregnant serval we saw earlier in the comic).

this is so adorable! the leopard and serval anatomy is flawless, and the song fits the drawing perfectly (isn't that song from the Tarzan soundtrack?)

Sure thing, the first is "Two Worlds" by Phil Collins :D
It's the song that plays at the beginning of the movie "Tarzan" by Walt Disney :)

Ohh, very cute. I didn't comment on this one before, but oh well.

I think the reason you may be having trouble with your serval is because he's looking very yellow in your image, and servals have a rather pale coat. I think if you tried a more light sandy color, you might get what you're looking for!
